|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you collect your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to search for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|

What fuel policy should I get?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You should get your car with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before returning the car rental. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
